SpaceX CRS-4 launch to deliver 3D printer to ISS cancelled due to bad weather


The rocket and spacecraft were supposed to launch at around 10:53 PDT for its SpaceX 4 Commercial Resupply Services flight with ISS-RapidScat mission.

"The launch director and team have made the determination to scrub today's launch attempt," NASA launch commentator Mike Curie was stated in the space agency's blog.

Next attempt for launch is set on Sunday, Sept. 21, at 1:52 in the morning EDT from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.

The countdown coverage will start at around 12:45 EDT on NASA's launch blog and on NASA TV.

The weather forecast of the agency calls for "40 percent chance of acceptable conditions" for the impending launch.
